Here’s the record company blurb with everything you need to know.

Alisa XayalithWorld renowned, multi-platinum, award-winning artist Alisa Xayalith of The Naked and Famous releases her brand-new single ‘I’ll Be There’.

After a decade of internationally touring in over 25 countries, performing at festivals from Coachella to Bonnaroo, and collaborating with artists around the globe, Alisa will now be releasing her long-awaited debut EP SUPERPOWERS come Spring 2022 via The Orchard.

Xayalith shares ‘I’ll Be There’ as a candid ode to friendship. It tells the raw and honest story of bringing a friend back to the surface after a difficult breakup in a long-term relationship. The new single follows the EP title track, which came out in December 2021, NME praised the song as a “lush, spacious pop cut that foregrounds the singer’s syrupy vocals with shimmering synths and a soaring, effervescent chorus.”

Xayalith describes her forthcoming EP as “dreamy, moody, and romantic, through a colourful vintage lens. I wanted to create a world I could escape in and reflect how I want to be seen.”



Born to refugee parents who left Laos from the overspill of the Vietnam war, Xayalith is one of seven children. While Xayalith faced many hardships in her childhood, one of the hardest was dealing with the loss of her mother at just seven years old – something, she says, has had an ‘immense impact on her’ as a human being. Her father later remarried, which added more layers to an already complicated life that the young Xayalith built a resilience to ‘survive’. But, she says, it is this resilience and determination that has carried her through her career. Music has always been her escape. Seeking it out through school choirs, vocal groups, musical theatre – then, at thirteen, learning to play the guitar, and write her own songs. The decision to pursue it as a career came when she returned to New Zealand after a year overseas. She enrolled in music school, which is where The Naked and Famous’ story began. Over 850 shows later, recognition around the world, and records we know and love, we now get to experience the beginning of Xayalith’s solo story.
